Really need a new set for Melbourne episodes. The current one is very cramped.


All they did was put the Q&A Logo on it recently. But i think Studio 31 is a bit small compared to the larger Studio 22 in Ultimo.


Studio 31 is 785 sq metres and 22 is 800. The old 31 at Ripponlea was much smaller.


Ahh. Which is why they used Docklands prior to Southbank.
